For the second year in a row, the Flames Sports Network will produce the Flames Sports Desk weekly magazine show, hitting the airwaves each week to provide the latest insights into Liberty Athletics.

The weekly 30-minute, magazine-style show will focus on Liberty's football program during the fall, before shifting to the Flames' basketball and baseball later in the year. The show was an award winning product last year, winning a Telly Award for excellence in broadcasting.

The weekly show is hosted by "Voice of the Flames" Alan York and FSN reporter Erin McKeown. Each show will have segments that feature Liberty's Olympic sports, community services projects, student-athlete features and more, giving all of Liberty's athletics programs added coverage.

The show will originally air on the Liberty Channel at Noon each Saturday and MASN each Saturday at 8 a.m.

Additionally, several regional and national networks are already slated to pick up the 30-minute show: Legacy Network (regional coverage – Florida), CTN (regional coverage - Florida) and WSET 13.2 (local/regional coverage - Digital 2 station for WSET - Channel 13). Fans wishing to watch the weekly show on these networks are encouraged to check their local listings for these stations.

Finally, the Flames SportsDesk will also be available on www.LibertyFlames.com each Saturday morning, helping prepare Liberty fans for that day's football match-up.

During this week's show, York sits down for a one-on-one interview with Turner Gill, where the two will recap Liberty's road setback to Coastal Carolina and preview Saturday's Big South clash at home against Charleston Southern.

The show also features an interview with Charleston Southern head coach Jay Mills, and Flames Sports Network Player of the Week Jennifer Klugh of the women's cross country team. Additionally, the show features an interview with former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich who was on campus prior to Liberty's football game against Concord, a Liberty University club sport update and the shows weekly Viewpoints segment with former Flames and NFL coach Sam Rutigliano.
